LITTLE ROCK SCHOOL DISTRICT

NEPN CODE:  GCN-R

 

SUPERVISION OF PROFESSIONAL CERTIFIED STAFF

The purpose of supervision is to improve the educational program and the effectiveness of instruction.  Thus the school principal is responsible for aiding teachers in implementing the approved objectives and reviewing teacher plans, observing actual instruction, offering suggestions for the improvement of teaching, and helping teachers correct deficiencies.  The principal may require a teacher to change methods and lesson plans when these conflict with the approved curriculum or Board policy.  A teacher who willfully ignores such a directive may be subject to a charge of insubordination.

The principal will be particularly attentive to the needs of new teachers, of those who are undertaking new instructional programs, and of those whose classes, for no apparent reason other than daily instruction, have not achieved as well as comparable classes on standardized tests and other appropriate academic measures.
